The UK dating company has had a very strong 2016, seeing a 53% increase in the number of new paying subscribers across its portfolio in January.
Earlier this year, the dating brand also launched SomethingSerious.com, a new site for daters tired of the repetitive and casual nature of many dating apps, as well as Instagram-focused “meaningful” dating app Jiko, which recently hit 1m swipes after just two months.
Yesterday it also announced that its successful transition of dating product Smooch.com to a paid site pushed its WooWise dating division’s EBITDA up by 279%.
And we are delighted to welcome Venntro as a silver sponsor of our first European event on Thursday 12th May in Amsterdam, a collaboration with The Dating Awards.
The company’s founder and CEO, Ross Williams will also be speaking at the event next month, giving a talk about founding an $80m/year company and almost losing it all in seven days.
Williams joins our exciting lineup of industry speakers, including CEOs of Zoosk, Paktor, The Inner Circle, EliteSingles & M14/Bristlr, as well as top executives from European dating brands Happn, Dating Factory & Once.
GDI will also be hosting a matchmaking stream that will run alongside the main online dating-focused track throughout the day, hosted by Caroline Brealey from London matchmaking company Mutual Attraction.
